Defying the Nazis: The Sharps' War

This new film, co-directed by Ken Burns and Artemis Joukowsky, documents a little-known but important mission by an American minister and his wife to rescue refugees and dissidents in Europe before and after the start of World War II.
In June, the First Tuesday Film Festival will be taking on the gun violence debate. We'll be screening Gunned Down as well as a couple of additional short videos. Followed by, we suspect, some seriously intense discussion.

In Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA, FRONTLINE goes inside the politics of America's gun debate and investigates how the NRA uses its unrivaled political power to stop gun regulation in America. Veteran filmmaker Michael Kirk investigates how it has consistently succeeded in defeating new gun control legislation. With first-hand accounts of school killings in Newtown and Columbine, and the shooting of Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, Gunned Down examines why despite the national trauma over gun violence Washington hasn't acted. - See more at:
